Travel tips for European countries: Albania
Albania is a mountain country and one of the smallest in Europe. The inhabitants allegedly landed from the ancient Illyria.
Albanian culture is heavily influenced by continental Greek culture, especially in urban areas; the turn means “no”, and the head blow means “yes”. In order to welcome something, preference is given to handshake, although a Shoku (friend) who has long been forgotten has previously been used. People are turning informally here. Bathing suits are for beaches because women are not expected to wear clothes. When addressing something, preference is given to the prefix Zoti or Zonja, and always remember that when you visit someone, gifts, although the flowers are not very acceptable. Guests are served with coffee, raki, or sweets. Smokers do not have to worry, but they should avoid it when they see Ndalohet Duhani or Ndalohet pirja e duhanit mark.
Traveling in the country
Buses with relatively cheap rates operate in the main cities of the country, and taxis are another option for some major hotels.
Visit Dajti Mountain and enjoy the Dajti Ekspres ski lift to reach an unforgettable 15-minute drive through Dajt Oark to Tirana. The route takes about 4.2 km and the trip costs 6.5 and Alfa Yachting offers a yacht with luxury. Tirana Bank is the best place to withdraw money because it allows you to use Visa cards.
Restaurants are not always hot enough, so always wear warm clothes when you go out in winter. Foreigners pay more than locals. Both entry fees and goods will be larger, so it is best not to disclose that you are a foreigner when you are on the streets.
Places to visit
If you like kayaking, this is the right place. There are places on the outskirts of Tirana that are an incredible place not only for kayaking but also for climbing, hiking, and camping.
If you want a 5-star atmosphere, try Sheraton Tirana Hotel and Towers in the middle of the shopping and entertainment center. There are about 151 rooms and 56 apartments. So, with convenience, you can buy comfort at the same time. Another hotel offering all modern amenities is the Mondial Hotel. It is 1000 meters from the city and is a good example of traditional architecture.
One of the best and easiest ways is to go by plane. Albanian Airlines is a national airline that cooperates with Tyrolean Airways and provides services to almost all major European cities. The airport, Mother Teresa, is 26 km or 26 km from the capital. A tourist bus is available every 3 hours to reach the city center and the arrival takes about 30 minutes. Taxis are available throughout the day. While waiting for any transport service, tourists can visit duty-free shops, banks, restaurants, and car rental at the airport. Foreign citizens are subject to a $ 10 exit fee. Check out www.flyalbanian.com for flight schedules and offers.
If you try to arrive by sea, try ferry services provided by the Adriatic and Agoudimos. The main ports are Durres (ferry to Italy, Bari, Brindisi, Trieste, and Ancona), Vlora (ferry to Bari and Brindisi), Saranda (joins Corfu), Shen Gjini Bari).
The bus is another option. Buses leave from Istanbul, Athens, and Sofia. Domestic passengers have many opportunities for bus services. If you are traveling in a private car, there is a road network in the Kosovo region, but they are too dangerous to use because of political tensions in the region. Crosses can be taken by Hani I Hotit, Bllata, Oafa and Thaes, Tushemisht, Gorica, Kapshtica, and Cocoa. If you are tired, you can stop at hotels or other designated locations. There is a network of 18,000 km, of which only 7450 km are the main roads for local travelers. Around 2138 km of these roads are in poor condition and have wells and maximum safety measures must be taken on such roads. The speed must be strictly adhered to on roads as well as in cities. Avoid driving at night due to the lack of public lighting.
